"The Hangover Part III": Draining the Glass

There's no actual hangover in the third installment of the blackout-themed franchise, but enduring this laugh-free sequel nonetheless does elicit a sick, queasy feeling. Director Todd Phillips' beautiful panoramas of the Arizona desert and Sin City skyline (the latter amusingly…

Impassively Outrageous

Like her pals Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis, Tig Notaro drops smoldering comedy bombs through her laconic deadpan. But unlike Silverman’s inflammatory ingénue or Galifianakis’s ingenuous prick, there’s a world-weary knowingness to Notaro’s persona, with suspicious stares and loaded pauses…
